What is “shiny object syndrome”?

Whenever a new idea arises , need not always mean it has merit.

Frequently followers of leaders who need a group of “yes” men around , feel the need to say “yes” to a new thought or idea espoused by a finite minded leader.

More often than not since these ideas do advance a “just cause” , these lead to distraction and the followers enticed by such ideas are eventually flummoxed and exhausted.

Hence the need to be judicious to stay away from them.

Simon Sinek’s “The Infinite Game” makes a mention of this.
